To a long time friend,
Horrible news and with great sadness to hear the passing of a long time friend. Back in 1989 when I first started in Snowy in Khancoban you reached out and included me in local activities and showed friendship to me as a new young employee. We stayed friends over the years and worked together on the Murray Overhauls and shared many laughs and good times. Rest in Peace. you will be missed my friend.March 22, 2021
